Welcome to my obsession!
What started innocently enough with a few guides collected from many park trips over the
years has turned into a quest. A quest to collect at least one of each Magic Kingdom guide the park has ever offered.
However, I needed a place to start. How do I know when I'm done? Google is usually your friend. But in this case, I came up empty (at least when I started). I found a few here, a few there...but nothing complete. I quickly realized I'd have to start catalogging them on my own if I wanted to make any progress.
What you see here is the result (in progress!) of that effort. So far it's been a blast. It's always fun stumbling across one that I don't have yet....let alone if I find one that I didn't have catalogged.
So I'm making the guide list available. I'm sure there are others out there (I know there are...you're bidding against me all the time!)
A few notes...
If I own the guide, the corresponding picture was scanned by me.
If not, it was found on eBay or thru google searches.
I suspect that I'll never be able to document all of them, but we're going
to give it a shot!
Please drop me a line
if you're a fellow Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disneyland, Animal Kingdom, MGM/Hollywood Studios guidebook collector. I'd love
to hear from you and know that I'm not the only obsessed one out there.

A note about the number of guides. From mid 1995 thru sometime in 2001 Disney printed a guide map for each week. That would mean an
additional 332 guides (well, 244 after the 88 I've id'd so far!) making the total around 434.
